We walked into our apartment and were blown away by the views and how super the apartment was. Having been travelling for nearly 6 weeks in HK, Aus and NZ you get a bit worried that the next place you have booked lives up to expectations and this place certainly did. It's not cheap but for us after out long... More

I second all the great things that have been said about Pounamu - the rooms themselves are great and have everything you need, plus the washing machine right outside your room is just fabulous. I've stayed in both the 1-bed room and a studio room. The only issue i have is the sound - it's built apparently 'to an NZ... More

We stayed in a studio room without views in building 3. The room looked fresh and contemporary with a simple grey and white theme with dark wood furniture. The walk from the apartments to the harbour takes about 45 mins along the lakeside via the peninsula (it's shorter if you cut across next to the ice rink). Pros Nice bathroom... More

Stayed 2 nights after Routebourne in a studio room. No views at all but modern, clean and roomy enough with a very comfortable bed after a few nights in the wilderness.Free laundry right outside the door was great and just a 10 minute maximum walk to town. Staff were wonderful and very friendly. Friends shared a 2 bedroom suite and... More

We stayed in the apartment after a gruelling campervan experience and it felt like heaven! The receptionist was exceptional. Warm and very helpful in giving advice. The apartment itself was luxurious and very well maintained. It had a great view of the lake and mountains. Only 2 minor points. The hotel is separated from the lake by a road. It... More

We decided on staying here last minute as we enjoyed queenstown so much we wanted to "go again". However as we were let down by our original place, the Rees, so thought we would book this place again. We last stayed here several years ago. It's still good. The 2 bedroom was of a good size. Has everything we needed,... More

We spent 5 nights at Pounamu Apartments in a one bedroom luxury apartment as the first leg of our honeymoon. As soon as we arrived the staff were very friendly and welcoming. Jenny in particular was great. She suggested restaurants to go to and offered to book these for us. When we were shown to our room there were rose... More

The studio is reasonably sized for two people even if the kitchen area is really small, although it provides everything needed, fresh milk included. The furniture is very modern, the bed is comfortable and the shower is very large. The apartments are not serviced daily so it would be nice having a way to refill kitchen stuff (coffee etc.) and...

I enjoyed my 6 night stay here. I had everything I needed in my studio and felt very safe. I liked it that it wasn't right in town as the walk in was nice, especially when I took the lake route. I also liked it that there was no daily service as I like to be left alone and don't... More

I stayed for 2 nights in a Studio Room. I enjoyed to location, with only a short car ride to the city centre. I also liked the inclusion of a secure car park and I loved having the convenience of a kitchenette. The bathroom and shower was amazing. However, the bed comforter was still unclean from the previous guests when... More
